Brittiany and Kevin Daughtrey || Wedding Photographer || Birmingham, AL
When I met Brittainy and Kevin for the first time for coffee, I instantly felt their connection and giddiness about spending the rest of their lives with one another. Before we left, Kevin described Brittainy as “the most beautiful soul he had ever met!”. I melted right there at his statement.
Kevin & Brittainy met at Peach Park in Clanton, Alabama. He was on a mission for the perfect honey crisp apple; she was seeking the best Chilton County peach she could find. Instead, they found each other. After talking for hours (that seemed like minutes), they decided to
grab dinner near by. After dinner, Kevin was certain to ask “So, when are we doing this again?”. After a few months of dating, Kevin proposed on the Walnut Street Bridge in his hometown of Chattanooga, Tennessee. Overlooking the Tennessee River, Kevin
asked Brittainy to reach in his pocket – inside, there was a ring. He hit his knee and of course she said yes.
They wanted to spend their special day surrounded by their innermost friends and family, with a guest count around 50 people or less. No wedding party, no large guest count, just the two of them and a few guest to witness it all. One of my favorite details of their day was their “venue” itself. Brittainy’s parents were married on a cliff in Vestavia, Alabama. Brittainy and Kevin sought out this residence and the owners were kind enough to let them stand on the very same cliff her parents said their “I do’s” almost 38 years ago. Talk about romantic!
Even her dad spoke and prayed over the couple during their ceremony. It is a moment this photographer will not soon forget.
They made their getaway in a gorgeous classic Rolls-Royce to a small reception space at Garden & Galley. There, the couple thanked everyone for coming and guests gave toasts and well wishes to the couple while they enjoyed a dinner service.
Thank you so so much for allowing me to be apart of this amazingly special and heart warming day my friends. Your marriage is marked with pure love and deep affection that touches my heart.
